Indie Boards and Cards

Indie Boards and Cards has a new game in their Aeon's End universe. This one is called Aeon's End: Outcasts and it's a standalone, cooperative deck-building expansion. It's got all the new things you'd want. There's new characters to face and play as, new items to collect, and new spells to master. There's also a new game mode. This new set is up on Kickstarter now.

The folks at Indie Boards and Cards had one Kickstarter campaign for Kodama 3D going, but it wasn't quite right. So, they did some pruning, grabbed some extra fertilizer, and they're looking to have this next go be better. They've relaunched a new campaign and are looking for funding now.

The graphic design behind a game can make or break it. You may not think about it often, but you probably have looked at a game and gone, "I mean... that just doesn't look right." Or "that game looks awesome! Let's give it a try!" It's the Graphic Designer that did that. And you can be the new one for Indie Boards & Cards, as they're hiring.

Trees. They're a vital part of the ecosystem. The spirits help them grow and become strong. And that's what you'll be doing in Kodama 3D. Indie Boards and Cards' popular 2D tree-growing card game is now getting a 3D makeover. The project is up on Kickstarter now.

Stronghold Games is looking to bring you the fifth expansion for Terraforming Mars. And they didn't just want to add a couple new cards or some new cubes. Nope, it's a whole huge expansion for Turmoil. Go to a new section of the planet entirely and deal with new corporations, projects, and global events. Yes, all of Mars will feel these changes. The expansion is up on Kickstarter now.

Look, sometimes, you gotta just do a slap-dash job to do what you can with the time and resources you have. When the Empress of Russia is going to do a float-by of your town, you gotta make it look good, no matter what. That's the story behind Potemkin Empire, a new board game from Indie Boards and Cards that's up on Kickstarter now.

Indie Boards and Cards has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Aeon's End: The New Age. It's a new expansion to their Aeon's End cooperative deckbuilder card game, and offers all new content in the form of the Expedition Mode. There's all sorts of new cards as well, all of it fully compatible with previous sets from the game.

I've been watching some documentaries lately on streaming that are all about natural disasters. Of course, there's some about earthquakes. With just a couple seconds of shaking, they can lay waste to entire cities. And in Aftershock, it's up to you to put things back together again. Stronghold Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for the new Deluxe Edition of the game.

Having a digital version of a game you love can be super handy. You can easily take it with you on your smart device of choice. That means, you can get it out when you want and play wherever you want without having to carry the whole game box around with you. And there's no chance of losing a component or two along the way. If you're a fan of the Aeon's End game, it's up on Kickstarter now, looking to get a digital version.

Not every game out there is great for 2 players. Some say they can be played there, but really can't. And others are honestly just for 3+ players. So what're you to do if it's just you and your buddy? Well, if you want to play Kodama, you can back Kodama Duo: Kindred Spirits from Indie Boards and Cards that's up on Kickstarter now. It's a 2-player version of the tree-growing game, that also brings the classic version up to 6 players if you want.
In a far-off distant dystopian future, the resistance is fight back against an oppressive government. Such a situation is actually a gold mine for criminals. The chaos and confusion is just the sort of place where you can get away with a lot and nobody is the wiser. That's where you find yourself in Nexus, a new stand-alone expansion for the Grifters card game. Build your hand as you go along and make sure you come out on top. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Legacy games are an interesting concept. As you play, you permanently alter the game. It's quite an interesting thing that's been sweeping through the gaming industry for a while. Well, Indie Boards and Cards is bringing that format to their Aeon's End game, with Aeon's End: Legacy. The cooperative deck-building game is up on Kickstarter now.
Indie Boards and Cards is full steam ahead with their games Heroes Wanted and Flash Point. Each one is getting a new expansion, and they've taken to Kickstarter to get them funded. Yes, two separate Kickstarters at the same time. Both are doing well, having made it over their funding goals.
Sometimes, games really take off when they're released and that can mean it's hard to get a copy for yourself. Such is the case with Aporta Game's Avenue. It came out at Essen last year and sold out quickly when the English-language version was released. Well, Aporta's teamed up with Indie Boards and Cards to not only bring you Avenue, but also set it in the Kodama forest. Kokoro: Avenue of the Kodama is the result and it's up on Kickstarter now.

You were supposed to be in charge of the Realms. You were the rightful heir. But the Tyrant Queen has come in, taken over, and thrown you out. But you're not just going to settle back and enjoy retirement in exile. You want to get back what is yours. And so you will raise an army, create a civilization, and take on the Tyrant Queen. But so will the other ousted heirs. That's the story behind Path of Light and Shadow, a new board game from Indie Boards and Cards that's up on Kickstarter now.
Friday is once again upon us. Gateway to the weekend. So many possibilities. I'm as busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Making all sorts of things in prep for tomorrow's MST3K binge party. I hate to go to a gathering empty-handed, so I'm making brownies, cookies, and prepping stuff so I can make nachos and Swedish meatballs while there. Like I said, hate to be empty-handed. But while I'm making those bite-sized treats, let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Two New Tank Turrets Available From Ramshackle Games, Tor Gaming Announces Their Affiliate Program, Circle of Blood from Last Bullet Games Coming To Kickstarter, Path of Light and Shadow Coming To Kickstarter, Final Days for Wreck Age Kickstarter, and Fluff Preview Posted For The Drowned Earth.

Aeon's End, the deck-building game from Indie Boards and Cards is getting a stand-alone expansion. It's called War Eternal and it continues on the fight with the last bit of The World that Was trying to hold on against The Nameless. Will you be able to push them back and save the little bit of reality? The set is up on Kickstarter now.
I'm allergic to bee stings. Not terribly. I don't carry an EpiPen or anything. But when I get stung, it's not just some mild pain like some get. So I tend to steer very clear of them. Thankfully, a game like Beeeees from Action Phase Games doesn't include any real bees. Instead, it's got a bunch of dice and tiles. It's also up on Kickstarter now.
Any good adventurer worth their salt loves the sight of a good dungeon. Sure, they're usually teeming with all manner of nasty monsters, but they're just as likely to also be teeming with all manner of awesome loot! In Delve, you'll grab your own band of adventurers and head into the twisting, turning hallways in search of treasure. Just watch out for the kobolds, as well as the other adventurers who aren't too keen on sharing. The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now.
It's a beautiful Saturday here in Atlanta. The sun's shining. It's warm outside.
... Sounds like a perfect time to go to the LGS and stay inside, playing games all day! :D
And to those dealing with ice up in the midwest, best to stay inside and play some games all day.
Long story short, it's a good day to play some games. But what games? Well, you could check out these reviews and pick from there.

Hey there, everyone. I hope you're all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I'm typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I'm making cookies, chocolate-coated peanut butter balls, and gumbo. Should be a good time. I'm sure a lot of you have somewhat similar plans.

As for the moment, though, before I dive into a bit of last-minute cleaning and then work on cooking, let's get you those gaming reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Bankers and Robbers, Dungeon Saga, Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, Conquest Games' Medieval Archers, Mysterium, Aeon's End, Love Letter: Premium Edition, Mortem Et Gloriam, The Networks, Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift, Tumult Royale, Necronomicards, Cthulhu Crusades, and Loony Quest.

It's Saturday.
It's also October.
I mean, seriously, can it really get that much better than this? Oh, yeah, *puts on some Type O Negative while working on the post* There we go.
Anyway, you want 'em, so here's your reviews for the week.

Today we have: Patchwork, Epic Roll: Eclipse, Arcadia Quest, Tutti Frutti, True Messiah, Eclipse, Trickerion: Legends of Illusion, Dodge Dice, Grifters, Codenames: Pictures, and Agamemnon.

Action Phase Games' most-known game is Heroes Wanted where you take two different cards and create your superhero from them. Well, now Action Phase Games and Indie Boards and Cards are merging like those two cards to create a new superhero. Or maybe they're just becoming a bigger gaming company as they work together. That could be the case, too.

Want to overthrow the powers that be? JR Honeycutt reviews Coup from Indie Boards and Cards. Vive la Revolution!


There's something to be said about only keeping the games you like most as part of your collection. Why have games you're not thrilled with cluttering up your shelves? Well, Coup is one of those games, for me at least, that would definitely be one I would own if I followed that line of thinking. It is my favorite hidden-role bluffing card game.
